Tom Brady channels Batman in pursuit of 1,000 rushing yards

By Rachel Wold

Ever since New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady took to social media, he has been quite the clever one when it comes to his imaginative posts.

The latest Brady masterpiece had him creating this Batman-themed video with the goal that he gains the three rushing yards he needs to hit the 1,000-yard career rushing mark this Sunday.

Given Brady’s lack of speed, those three yards he needs are not necessarily guaranteed to be earned in just one game.

For those who have watched the 41-year-old quarterback run, it can be a painful act to witness. This is why it has taken him midway into his 17th season to nearly make his way to 1,000 rushing yards.

Perhaps the Green Bay Packers defense will catch wind of Brady’s post and give him a little freebie to achieve this landmark. Brady and the Patriots host the Packers for “Sunday Night Football” in Week 9.
